To reduce risk and demonstrate due diligence, organisations should assess their legal and other requirements, and implement control measures.
Environmental legal and other requirements can be complicated and found in many forms such as treaties, conventions, statutes, regulations, by-laws, permits and licences. Additionally, some industries have their own environmental compliance and policy requirements. When organisations break these environmental compliance requirements they can face serious penalty and even prosecution.
Our Consultants assist organisations by identifying and reviewing environmental compliance requirements against their activities, products and services. These environmental compliance requirements can be presented in different formats and as required we can provide plain-English interpretations.
Furthermore we can assist organisations with achieving their environmental compliance requirements through the development of environmental management plans and ISO 14001 environmental management systems, identifying suitable control measures and the provision of training.
It should be noted that we are not lawyers and cannot provide legal advice. However, we have real world experience managing organisational environmental risk and environmental compliance requirements. We can also provide information in a reader friendly format, i.e. non-lawyer language, and keep our costs down.
